Good morning Jules,

I hope yesterday went off okay. I bet there were some emotional moments for you and it must have brought many memories flooding back. You were in my thoughts a lot yesterday and I feel sure many people on here were also thinking of you.

Have you had any snow in your area this morning? We have been very lucky as we have only had a very light dusting but when I took Mrs B shopping, we saw several cars with deep snow on the bonnets driving around town. My youngest grandson has got a bad infection round the feeding button on his tummy. Their consultant has told my son that the infection may require an operation to sort it out as nothing seems to be working for him. It looks very sore  and painful but he still keeps smiling and making people laugh bless him. The courage our young people show at times make me feel small.

Take care Jules and please be assured, we are still thinking of you, Brian

Hi everyone

Just logged on and am totally overwhelmed (you sure as hell know how to bring out my emotions!!).  Thamk you all so much.  My hubby's celebration of life was so well attended it was 'shifted' to the larger chapel and despite the obvious sadness, we were as one in our thoughts and prayers as we bade a final goodbye. Many tears but also laughter as we all had our memories out for an airing in the three hours following the service. Beautiful buffet provided by his local drinking hole and a good few glasses raised (even if a lot were soft drinks ha ha) and we had some to take home for supper too!  The children and grandchildren came back and we had a very relaxed evening together (daughter and family stayed over so the boys could go to bed at normal time).

Today has been spent catching up with thank you notes and more paperwork plus tea and cake with friends at lunch time.  We managed to raise over £550 for the nominated charity who had helped hubby at the start of his journey - he would have been thrilled.

Brian, sorry to read about your Grandson's infection and do hope they can get him more comfortable very soon.  Our eldest has an emergency ENT appointment tomorrow (another half day off school) to follow up on a week of nosebleeds (the last one took over 2hrs to stem) and to see if they are going to cauterize.  I shall have Zack for a couple of hours (he has just cut tooth no.3 and it will be easier for daughter/son in law to concentrate rather than coping with both of them during the hospital appointment).

Once again thanks to all my forum friends for your continued love, prayers and support which is truly appreciated.  Hugs and kind thoughts to your all.  Jules xxx

Hi Jules, you've just climbed over another mountain and came down the other side still intact. You are one tough lady, but I'm sure there are times when you don't feel as strong as you appear. Many of us here on the forum have had you in our hearts and our prayers. Find some time to sit back now with your feet up and reflect on what you need. Sometimes we continue to put our own needs on the back burner while looking after a loved one, and that is how it is, but we still need to re-charge our own batteries from time to time.

Take care and stay in touch. Hugs

Hello Jules so glad that one of the hardest occasions went ok. I have been thinking of you and as Alexs funeral was in November it brought it all back. My family sounds very much like yours and have been very supportive. I am so glad that you are managing to get out. It's been pretty bad weather wise and apparently the temperature is to be minus twelve tonight with snow forecast. I won't be going out I ambabysitting two year old thomas the tank engine fanatic tomorrow. Take care speak to you soon Margaret
